Matt Brantley is a third year graduate student and PhD candidate. Matt joined the Solouki lab in the fall of 2014. He is pursuing his PhD in Analytical Chemistry. He completed his undergraduate degree in Chemistry at the University of Texas at Tyler. He is originally from Latexo, Texas.

Research Summary:
“My research focuses primarily on instrument development, but I have strong interests in using mass spectrometry as a tool to assist other researches in solving chemical problems. Having a background in software engineering, I am interested to see how computers can be used to improve analysis techniques. Recently we have published work developing software for the deconvolution of overlapped isomers in Ion Mobility. My current work is with the improvement of Radio Frequency Ionization Sources, detection and quantification of pesticides in Chinese herbal medicines, Kendrick Analysis of biofuel producing algae, and novel mass spectrometry imaging approaches.”
